10 Brilliant Cover Versions Of Classic Songs

9. Children Of Bodom - Oops!…I Did It Again

Originally recorded by: Britney Spears

Ever wondered what Britney Spears’ early noughties pop classic Oops!… I Did It Again would sound like covered by a Finnish extreme metal band? Well now’s your chance. This clearly tongue-in-cheek version, by longtime purveyors of melodic death metal Children of Bodom, ranks among the weirdest covers you’ll ever hear.

Despite their extreme sound, Children of Bodom are well known for their sense of fun and are clearly having a ball with this interpretation. It features raking guitars, chugging riffs, snarling, layered vocal harmonies and a frankly awesome Guitar Hero solo in the final third. That solo doesn’t last nearly long enough.

Whilst it's totally ridiculous, this is actually a great version that you might just end up falling in love with.
